Debbie Biewer, MSN, RN
Director, Ambulatory Nursing
"I was initially drawn to MedStar Franklin Square Medical Center, because it is a community hospital with an emphasis on professional development and education. The reason I stayed is because MedStar Franklin Square is an organization that encourages best practices, evidence-based care, and personal growth and development. Leaders listen to great ideas and empower nurses to think outside the box and implement new projects and solutions to improve care. There is also a strong focus on safety and error prevention. I have been able to explore a career path (not just a “job”), go back to school, and have the autonomy to focus on the things about which I am passionate."
Debbie Biewer, RN, BSN, began her nursing career in 1989. Her background includes NICU, pediatrics, adjunct faculty for cardiopulmonary med/surg, and ambulatory nursing. She came to MedStar Franklin Square in 2006 as a nurse educator for 5 ambulatory offices. Debbie progressed to being an educator for 26 offices, and is now the director of patient care services and nursing for over forty ambulatory locations found in three counties. Her specialty is focusing on safety, best practice, and quality for ambulatory settings.
Debbie received her BSN from Salisbury University, and is currently pursuing a Master’s degree in Nursing Healthcare Leadership at Stevenson University.
